Description
 
The 2014 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes is a blend of 60% Garnacha and 40% Cariñena from different villages. The 2014 vintage was a high yielding, warm vintage and the grapes from the nine villages of Priorat fermented in a combination of oak and cement vats with natural yeasts and matured in oak barrels for ten months. This is always a characterful wine, with the unmistakable signature of the Cariñena with the rusticity of the dusty roads of Priorat. The palate is really lively, with some dusty tannins and high acidity. It's long and it finishes with a mineral sensation. Despite my references to some rusticity, this is very elegant, much more elegant and refined than the wines from the 1990s and 2000s. Elegant rusticity, that is! There are 103,800 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2015. Wine Advocate 93

Alvaro Palacios, whose family owns the prestigious Rioja Bodega, Palacios Remondo, spent 2 years at Château Pétrus before setting up on his own in Priorat in 1989. From the outset, he set out to produce world-class wines by using fruit from extremely low-yielding old vines and by applying ultra-modern winemaking techniques. Spirit, patience, passion, light and rigour have all played their part in creating fresh and mineral, well-rounded wines, which have revolutionized the Spanish wine-making scene and reached the greatest heights of prestige and recognition on the worldwide stage.
